Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Nikon D7000, which was introduced in November 2010 is a Advanced DSLR camera with a 16.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Fujifilm X-T1, which was introduced in April 2014 is a Advanced Mirrorless camera with a 16.0MP APS-C sensor. As you can see, D7000 is 4 years older than X-T1. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Nikon D7000 and Fujifilm X-T1 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Nikon D7000 and Fujifilm X-T1 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
